Hummingbird at Filoli

The other day, my husband and I were standing at the front door of the house discussing something when a hummingbird came and checked us out. Just a brief look, and off he went.

 

The Anna's hummingbirds stay in our area year round. I still hear and see them, but they are harder to photograph as I'm not sure what flowers they are feeding from.

 

I took this shot a Filoli months ago. I had to switch lenses quickly to get this...thankfully there was a long row of flowers, and she was making her way down the line. It worked out well for me, as she eventually got in some better light.
